[quote:Anonymous Coward 863003:MV85NjMyNjNfMTUwMjA1MDVfNDM0MTgwNzU=] [quote:PhenomAnonymous] I can't remember anything from the "gifted & talented" program. Like another said, it's like a blank spot in my memory. The only thing I remember was taking tons of tests. I remember that I didn't mind taking the tests. I rather enjoyed them. I remember getting out of class a lot to talk to different people. But like I said, I don't remember one thing from the program itself. All this took place in elementary school years through 5th grade. Then my family moved to a different city and that was it. Testing saved my grades in school. I was very poor at doing homework. But I always aced my tests. So yeah, what were they testing me for? Where are the results? Hell, WHAT were the results? Makes me wonder...... [/quote] Maybe if you see one of the tests, it will jar your memory? I remember everything but of course that is an inherited trait for me. We were also encouraged to read certain books. Do you remember going to the library, scrambling to get THE book before it was checked out? This was an effect that was totally created. I remember checking the same few books out and keeping them over due, just to see the other kids not be able to get them. Books that were encouraged were: A Wrinkle in Time, The Elephant Man (That was my personal favorite to withhold), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and any of the books from the Choose Your Own Adventure Series.

Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?
Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
